|Beauty Tips for an Indian Bride
A celebrity makeup artist reveals some of his top beauty tips. "A bride should
be beautiful and not overdone. It is love that makes her beautiful and not the
makeup artist. She?s the star and has to look like a dream, her face
translucent, soft and glowing. Never forget that a compact powder and lipstick
must always be carried by a relative for a quick touch up."
Use a Very light moisturizer to prepare your skin. Choose a concealer of a
lighter color shadow areas of the face around the eyes and nose.
Then apply and blend all over the face and under the neck an oil free
foundation, which will last throughout a long and hot day. Try and choose a
tone slightly lighter than your skin tone but never white! Indian skin has a
yellow undertone, hence a matte foundation is very important if you are being
photographed, as you don?t want bad details to show through shiny skin. If
necessary touch up your face with a concealer to get rid of blemishes.
Apply translucent powder with a pinkish undertone and spread evenly all over
the face to obtain a matte effect, paying careful attention to the forehead,
nose and chin. Check the front and profile of your face, as they are equally
important. Always powder your chest area if you wear a d?collet? blouse.
The eyes are always very important, as they are a reflection of the soul. They
are the focus of the face. Use a brown eyeshadow for softness and white makeup
to lift. Apply a dark tone at the outer corner of the eyes and blend with white
to make grey. White and black make-up is the safest to use, as almost anyone
can carry it off. Keep blending and adding color and so as to avoid
concentration of any one particular color.
Use a thin line of white eyeliner on the eyelid, to highlight the eyes. Finish
the line with black eyeliner and add a little black eyeshadow under the eye.
Then apply black mascara to the lashes. Remove any clumps with Q-tips. Next,
brush eyebrows and apply a brown eyebrow pencil for extra definition.
Always concentrate on the mouth, before the cheeks to give the intensity of the
face. Use a contour lipstick to define the lips in the same harmony as the
lipstick. Use a long lasting product and color lip in full. It is always
important to have your lipstick match your outfit.
Apply powder blush in ruby from the cheekbone outwards and under the chin. Add
white powder to highlight the top of the cheek. Blend with brush and powder for
the final touch including d?collet? and ears. Finally place Tikka on forehead.
With these simple and easy tips you can easily dress up a bride very
professionally even at home.
